  • Dr. Christoph Borchers starts term as CNPN president June 15, 2010

    From the Desk of the President

    On June 15th, 2010 my term begins as the president of the Canadian National Proteomics Network (CNPN). I will be replacing the accomplished Dr. Guy Poirier who presided over the CNPN since the its incorporation in the fall of 2008. I would like to thank Guy for his outstanding work to develop and promote the CNPN.

    As the new president, I will continue to emphasize the CNPN’s important role as a cooperative national research network and its mandate to promote proteomics education, training and research in Canada. One of my objectives is to raise the CNPN’s standing among the research and education community. My hope is to attract new members from various disciplines, including medicine and biology. I will also focus to improve the access to education and training in proteomics by organizing hands-on and web-based workshops. To ensure publicity and longterm sustainability of the society, we need to increase the involvement of industrial sponsors and attract international meetings to Canada. Finally, during my tenure as president of the CNPN, I plan to continue development of a national strategy to promote Canadian proteomics research and facilitate international collaborations on large-scale projects such as the Human Proteomics Project.
